|Amanda Jernigan, Art Waves #137|
Amanda Jernigan's first book of poetry, Groundwork, draws fresh magic out of some of the oldest soil of literature, including the Garden of Eden and the tale of Odysseus and Penelope. Through the mask of these ancient myths she bares her own deepest truths, and she is as generous in this interview as she is in her poetry. Tune in to this episode of Art Waves to witness the dawn of a remarkable talent.

|John Haney, Photographer, Art Waves #151|
After the interview John Haney said, "I forgot to say that recently I saw a man in the grocery lift a bouquet of orange flowers to his face to breathe in their scent, and I cursed myself for not having my camera with me. Then I realized that being a photographer means paying attention. It means you will see beautiful photographs everyday that you don't take. But in a way, you take them just by noticing." For more of John Haney's passionate eloquence, listen to Art Waves #151.
